If we become so occupied in either proving or disproving the actual event,and in the meantime overlook the moral lessons,then I suggest we have missed the point.
The Lord told the story about the ‘ wolves in sheeps clothing’ ,’servants who worked for hire’ , and ‘evil men’ who would ‘arise from within your ownselves not sparing the flock ‘and I think we missed that point too…
Likewise there is some extremely valuable moral lessons that might even be learned as well too, from the aftermath of what eventually tend to develop when humans have already allowed themselves to become far too blasé in this regard to our need of “proving or disproving” matters
Besides.Wolves in sheep’s clothing might even be? “unwittingly” busy with actively leading people astray by continually advising us against acts of proving or disproving matters.
So we should also remain wary to not just overlook this possibility either. To still continue to miss this point , would be like thoughtlessly continually overlooking a most highly important moral

A good question is this.Why do? theist carry this need to feel fearful in regard to our ongoing search for truth in regard to these matters of faith beliefs.
I find it harder to trust people whom also do seem constantly intent on trying to shut down certain aspects of discussion . Why? would they feel such need to do this (if they would honestly feel their faith belief is foundered on fact)
Perhaps it’s because they might also inwardly already sense it themselves ,that their dearly held faith belief might not be quite so much founded on fact as they may still really wish to be able to believe it might be
I’m sure there will also be many faithful exclusive brethren folk as well too, whom may also feel “fearful and uneasy” when being actively faced with serious questions in regard to times of James Taylor Jr back at Aberdeen
Seem to have become a bit of a Christian™ . The universal Christian ™ of continually being actively seen busily trying to close-down “certain” aspect of human discussion
Pfffft ….So much for their so called “Christian foundation built on solid rock”
Foundations seem to remain so feeble and shaky that the ™ Christian must also still constantly need to be observed trying to actively close down certain aspect of ongoing discussion and inquiry
They must inwardly fear that foundations of their own faith belief still has this constant need to rely on ongoing censorship
